With all the Twilight nonsense, as well as romantic/seductive depictions of vampires I've seen in other films and TV series, this film is a refreshingly different depiction of a vampire as a serial killer and rapist. There's a touch of the psychedelic about the general ambience, which also gives it plus-points for me. Worth a view if you share my taste...or just want to see an actual monster movie based around a vampire for a change!

Another amazing public domain 70s cheerio also starring William Smith (??).
But check out the surfeit of ephemeral cinematic charms: Use of degrading lighting and degraded filmstock; labyrinthine-yet-interesting plotting; bizarre character choices and dialogue delivery from early 70s hardcore - yet no sex, only vampiric bloodfeast and ritual? A lost Zebedy Colt mainstream attempt, surely. But no, its actually the first title on the now-better-known David Chase's imdb credits.

he's entitled to prefer psychologizing mafiosi. But, as an extremely cheap and grainy entry into the vampire arcana this film boasts some highly impressive female characters in supporting vam' Chase was no slouch in packing this full of Warren magazine inanity and blessed with using film stock recycled from cigarette cellophane.
